This Paleo Chicken Stir-fry is one of the many recipes that I have been making for ages but never took the time to write it down. Stir-fry is really the perfect meal to make in a pinch. It is usually my – “clean out the fridge meal.”
You just throw all the remaining vegetables in a skillet with some chicken and teriyaki and then dinner is done in about 30 minutes.
I personally don’t eat any soy because of the reaction I get with my autoimmune disease. However, I have found an awesome alternative to soy sauce and that is coconut aminos. I started using them a few years ago and would make my own teriyaki sauce. Eventually the company Coconut Secret ended up releasing some flavored coconut aminos and one of them was teriyaki flavored. It really is SO freaking good and awesome for a quick weeknight meal. You should be able to find it at any health food store or even on Amazon.
This dish a low-carb and paleo recipe by serving this with cauliflower rice. However, if you are feeling the need for some carbs it is great with my coconut pineapple rice.
